Hi there! I'm Sharlene & I work in Toronto

A wee bit about myself ….. I live in Etobicoke with my family and dogs.  We called High Park our home for many years and spent a lot of our time in Roncesvalles and The Junction.  We have also lived in Little Italy and the Bloor and Ossington neighbourhoods. I know many of the west Toronto neighbourhoods very well.  Despite the old idea that Torontonians are either “west end” or “east end” people, I have done quite a lot of business in the east end of Toronto and have an affinity for Riverdale and Leslieville especially.

When I am not working with people to buy and sell homes,  you can find me running in and around Etobicoke neighbourhoods and park/ravine systems.  MyJRT, Mayday and my Rhodesian Ridgeback, Cherry Pie, are often at my side.

I am a small town girl at heart, being raised in the Kawarthas.  I love all that Toronto has to offer and have found a balance in outdoor lifestyle in Etobicoke.

 

Will we be a good match?

I am not for everyone....

There are a LOT of real estate agents out there.  You can have your pick of who you want to work with, I am well aware. Just as you are searching for the right agent for you, I am sizing up how serious you are and what you need to help you through the process.  By the end of our first discussion, you can expect that I will have some good ideas about what kind of real estate experience you require.  From a lot of extra support and resources for selling during a difficult situation (divorce, death, POA or hoarding for example), to requiring a lot of exposure to what is currently for sale, to pulling together a quick sale and purchase – I have managed it all. 

Working with Shar was an incredible experience. She really took the time to the know the needs of my family. Tiny, but mighty she fought hard for me! I will be forever grateful for how hardworking, professional and personable Shar is.

What To Expect When Working With Me...

Options – you are the decision maker and I will provide you with many details and options to help you make the very big decisions along the way. 

Professional opinion based on experience and knowledge.

Calm. When and if problems arise ( and they can!), you can expect that I will calmly manage them with you.

Patience. I have been told I have the patience of a saint. I will never rush you through this process (unless we are in an offer process and the clock is ticking – I will then nudge you).

Agents who give us a bad reputation

Real Estate is a people business. It is not for the lazy or greedy.

The Hood I Call

Home

I currently call Etobicoke home. My favourite hoods are West Mall, Markland and Centennial areas, but I can catch myself romanticizing about High Park.

My Real Estate

Crush

I’m a sucker for anything mid century modern.  I love the untouched gems that are waiting for a careful update.

After Hours

Hangout

When I’m not working you’ll find me  herding children, walking dogs and running – sometimes all at once.

My Happy

Place

There’s no place that helps me unwind better than spending time in nature. A long hike in the woods is my ideal afternoon.

Annette has a long standing great reputation in mortgage lending.  I will often refer clients to her as one of the options for lenders.  Not only is she sweet as pie to talk to, she is brilliant at pulling together the best mortgage packages for my clients.

John is another Broker I refer to for my clients who are looking for lending options.  I have been struck by John's ability to thoroughly explain the mortgage lending process to first time home buyers. I know they are in good hands with him and that they are well informed every step of the way.
